Not a good week.

RAFL: up 1.5 to 215lb. arrgghhh

I can't seem to get back on track after the holidays. I think I am going to try the Fast Track plan
for 2 weeks for the days we don't eat out. No more snacking or chocolate at my neigbhors. I also
should limit myself to 1 or 2 nights out. This week was 4 which is unusual for us. Tuesday is my
normal night out with my neighbor but the other 3 were not planned. One night was chinese take-out
and I opted to have their diet plate: a pint of scallops and mixed veggies steamed with no salt,
oil, etc. Very plain. But I blew it by having an egg roll and 2 pieces of my daughter's sweet and
sour (fried) chicken. That's where I fall down on the job. Last night was Applebees and I had
planned on having one of the chicken salads. Nope. I had their chicken & brocolli alfredo combo that
comes with dessert. arrgghh. No willpower this week. Got to get back on track some how this week. My
weight loss has slowed to below a pound a week since September. I would like to get it back up to at
least a pound a week again.

THTP: 4 sessions of curves.

I did work harder on the recovery pads this week and had my heart rate up to 75%/85% on Friday &
Saturday. This is an improvement since I normally struggle to get it to 65% most days.

Just sign me, Frustrated

Well, I will send you some empathy. I have been having a real hard time giving up the holiday goodie
spirit too.

Hey Frustrated;-) Just hang in there and everything will fall into place again. I've just had my
first week OP since the beginning of November--feels great, and you can do it again, too.

Well dang! I hate when my good intentions to eat smart disappear when confronted with other choices.
I probably would've gone for the alfredo combo w/dessert myself. Maybe the good news is that this
week's gain will have the positive effect of strengthening your attention and refocusing your
effort. Great work at Curves. Your labors there will pay off.

There is just too much "stuff" around. My neighbor who should not have any chocolate in her house
(she's diabetic) has all sorts of stuff sitting on her coffee table. She's the one that I go out to
eat with most of the time. It is very hard to be faithful to this program with her around.

Thanks Linda. I am going to do the Fast track program this week to see if that helps a bit. If I can
get the family back on track with menus and stop the eating out then that will help too. Right now
it is snowing so we won't be doing food shopping today. I'll make up menus for the week for hubby to
get after his work tomorrow.

Laura:

The fast track plan was really good for me. I went out and bought all the food that I would need for
the week on the first day and it was so nice having at least my meals all planned out. If you try it
have some ww vegetable soup on hand for emergencies!!

My efforts at Curves are slowly paying off that's for sure. Not much progress this past month on the
scale. I'm at the weight I was on December
8. My gain may have been due to last night's dinner. Boy was it yummy. I am refocused today. Let's
hope I can make that last for 2 weeks.

Wish me luck before the opera next friday - a really nice restaurant and I've probably had my fill
of broiled fish and broccoli (G) I will give in with desserts - that is a known!!!

Thanks Kristin. Today is day 2. Yesterday went fine. I kept under the 20 points and that included a
few pieces of candy at my neighbors house. The
1.5lb that I gained over the weekend from eating out (water?) is gone so I am back to where I was
this time last week. Maybe the Fast track will work. I sure hope so.

Thanks Kristine. It has been very hard this year but I think I got it now. I'm trying the Fast Track
for the next 2 weeks and will limit myself to only 1 dinner out this week.

news:ipHOb.31911$P%[email protected]... Sorry about the gain. I too am having a

news.ops.worldnet.att.net... Not a good week.

RAFL: up 1.5 to 215lb. arrgghhh

I can't seem to get back on track after the holidays. I think I am going to try the Fast Track plan
for 2 weeks for the days we don't eat out. No more snacking or chocolate at my neigbhors. I also
should limit myself to 1 or 2 nights out. This week was 4 which is unusual for us. Tuesday is my
normal night out with my neighbor but the other 3 were not planned. One night was chinese take-out
and I opted to have their diet plate: a pint of scallops and mixed veggies steamed with no salt,
oil, etc. Very plain. But I blew it by having an egg roll and 2 pieces of my daughter's sweet and
sour (fried) chicken. That's where I fall down on the job. Last night was Applebees and I had
planned on having one of the chicken salads. Nope. I had their chicken & brocolli alfredo combo that
comes with dessert. arrgghh. No willpower this week. Got to get back on track some how this week. My
weight loss has slowed to below a pound a week since September. I would like to get it back up to at
least a pound a week again.

THTP: 4 sessions of curves.

I did work harder on the recovery pads this week and had my heart rate up to 75%/85% on Friday &
Saturday. This is an improvement since I normally struggle to get it to 65% most days.
